Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Spray a large stockpot or dutch oven with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add bacon, and sauté until starting to brown. Add onion and jalapeño, and continue cooking until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Add butter and garlic, and stir until butter is melted.
  2. Sprinkle flour over onion mixture, and stir to combine. Slowly stir in chicken broth a little at a time, stirring constantly to eliminate any lumps of flour. Stir in Cajun and Old Bay seasonings and corn. Bring soup to a simmer.
  3. Add milk, and return to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium. Cook 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently. Add drained crab meat, and simmer 3-5 minutes longer. Serve with bread and a side salad, and enjoy!
